People who have been newly diagnosed with heart challenges are told to lay off the cholesterol-laden sandwiches and steer clear of full-fat dairy items loaded with saturated fat. But new research shows this advice may be misguided. A decade-long study that reviewed cardiovascular disease research extending over more than 70 years found low magnesium levels contributed more to heart disease than did cholesterol or even saturated fat.

In fact, for many years research has shown magnesium deficiency to be strongly related to all aspects of heart disease, including arrhythmias, irregular heartbeats, angina, ischemic heart disease, congestive heart failure, coronary heart disease and the risk factors for heart disease such as hypertension and high cholesterol.

Andrea Rosanoff, one of the magnesium’s most aggressive researchers, shares her findings from much of her research and brings much awareness about magnesium deficiency to the table. Her work shows that common risk factors for cardiovascular disease such as high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, and metabolic syndrome are all associated with low nutritional magnesium status or low magnesium dietary intakes. Also that there are many peer-reviewed studies that show correcting or preventing a nutritional magnesium deficit can and will correct or prevent cardiovascular disease events, including death.

In addition to the work of researchers like Rosanoff and Dr. Mildren Selig, Dr. Carolyn Dean has contributed to the unmasking of magnesium deficiency as a common denominator in heart disease risk factors.

Dr. Dean has published a comprehensive list of the 65 conditions that may be indicators of magnesium deficiency in her new edition of The Magnesium Miracle, 2017 Edition – you can get that on Amazon.

One interesting caveat: very few allopathic doctors consider looking at magnesium as a treatment for heart disease. Dr. Dean believes that when you have one common denominator like magnesium, it’s necessary to pursue healthy dietary supplementation before using strong drugs with side effects.

To check your own magnesium levels, request a Magnesium RBC test from your family physician. Only 1% of the total body magnesium is in the blood, and therefore the serum magnesium test is not an accurate measure of magnesium in the whole body. By getting the Magnesium RBC test you’ll get a more accurate picture of your deficiency or sufficiency level.

If you have a magnesium deficiency then it’s best to modify the diet and include magnesium supplementation. Dr. Dean recommends magnesium supplementation for the simple reason smart dietary choices don’t necessarily lead to sufficient magnesium intake so supplementation is recommended. Of course, Dr. Dean also recommends her own formula, ReMag.*

The bottom line is getting adequate magnesium either through diet, supplements, or both can both prevent heart disease in most people and reverse heart disease risk factors. It’s what a body needs!

Tonight on our internet based radio show, we’ll  be talking with Dr. Carolyn Dean about how to Correct and Prevent Nutritional Magnesium Deficiency along with a wide range of health topics and safe solutions. You will love hearing the beneficial interactions with our callers and hosts alike including the body/mind connection, identifying the ‘conflict’ in the ‘conflict basis’ of disease and much more!!

  1. I finally took the RBC Magnesium test and result is 4.5. I spoke to Mary Louise at your # who said most people deficient in magnesium take between 2 & 4 teaspoons a day. When you get to sufficiency start backing down & see if you stay at sufficiency.
    To increase & decrease by 1/4 teaspoon. Go up every 2 or 3 days as long as you feel the same or better. She said she does 4 teaspoons Remag & 2 teaspoons Remyte in 32 oz. water with 1/4 tsp sea salt in glass container i.e. quart canning jar. I had been taking Remag at 1/2 tsp in a.m. & 1/2 tsp in afternoon into evening & 1/4 tsp at bedtime in a little water plus drinking my 50 oz of water per day etc. But since adding a pinch of sea salt to 32 oz water plus all my ReMag & Remyte I feel much more grounded, calm and sleep better too.
    I am confused about how much ReMag to increase to but I think it will become obvious?
    I do take a Chinese medicine herbal pill formula for Kidney Yin deficiency 3 times a day which helps wonderfully. I am vegetarian eating some fish and I eat at least one egg per day. Everything organic, spring water from a reputable company, Healthforce Chlorella 1 tsp/day with fresh greens i.e. tat soi, mizuna, romaine, nettles, arugula in some variation in less than 2 oz water add a little avocado (or Coyo coconut yogurt although I stopped the yogurt because fermented foods appear to give a migraine; also alcohol, vinegar too including apple cider vinegar seem to trigger migraine). I eat raw greens with a little fruit first thing in a.m. then usually a hardboiled egg with brown rice and veggies or Grindstone Bakery’s Millet/Quinoa Bread or Food For Life’s Rice Bread with a bit of coconut oil or just plain or Tart Cherry Jam or Bilberry Jam. Hardly any agave or other sweeteners. Eat Grains, beans, all variety of vegetables some nuts & seeds, Nori seaweed, herbs & spices. Walk every day, plus exercise: stretches a little chi gong and a little yoga. Sleep early to bed so I get 8 hours. Feeling good. By the way Blood Pressure Herbal Pill formulas are available from Chinese Medicine.
